    Is the Integy aluminum steering bell crank worth it? Or any aluminum up grade? I'm running a high torque servo but the steering just isn't there.

    Try replacing the bushings in the belcranks with bearings. I run a 300 oz servo. All stock otherwise. Mine turns great.

    Try a different diff fluid as well. Maybe tighten your servo saver spring as well. If something is sloppy I would look into what is causing it, bearing, bushing, etc.

    Also run a hump pack battery for the electronics. You need more amperage! It makes a huge difference

    I run a 2700 mah li ion with an ultimate bec so plenty of power. As said above this is the MOST important ingredient in a good steering truck.

    What's your servo? "high torque" is somewhat subjective.

    Also, what tires are you running?
